They Laid Medgar Evers In His Grave

In Jackson, Mississippi, in 1963
There lived a man who was brave
He fought for freedom all of his life
But they laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
They laid Medgar Evans in his grave
They laid Medgar Evans in his grave
He fought for freedom all of his life
But they laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
He spoke words of truth for all men to hear
Black and white alike for to save
Then a hate-filled white man named Byron De La Beckwith
Laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
He laid Medgar Evans in his grave
He laid Medgar Evans in his grave
Then a hate-filled white man named Byron De La Beckwith
Laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
He taught words of love, dignity and freedom
He died before he’d be a slave
Then a high-powered rifle tore out his heart
And laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
And laid Medgar Evans in his grave
And laid Medgar Evans in his grave
Then a high-powered rifle tore out his heart
And laid Medgar Evans in his grave
 
Medgar had some company in his heavenly home
Those little children from Birmingham
Like Christ, they died for you and for me
They died for you to be free
 
They died for you to be free, Lord
They died for you to be free
Like Christ, they died for you and for me
They died for you to be free
